A new software application, which is being offered free to producers of cattle, sheep and goats, will provide a one-stop shop for managing livestock accreditations and collecting on-farm data, thereby enhancing management efficiencies and food traceability.
The Geelong-based Australian software company Aglive is offering its Aglive IntegriPro software system free to all red meat producers for the Mob Basic package, with the option to upgrade for more added features for a fee.
The app integrates farm accreditation and management data onto one platform, in the cloud, to provide a completely portable digital resource accessible via smartphone, tablet or desktop.
The app is a new and upgraded version of the company’s former farmer software app, with added features for farm management and the completion of electronic National Vendor Declarations and National Cattle and Sheep Health Declarations.
Unlike other farm management software on the market, Aglive IntegriPro enables producers to complete industry and commercial certifications in one central spot, including unlimited eNVDs and National Livestock Identification System compliance.
Capabilities to complete Meat Standards Australia, European Union and National Feedlot Accreditation declarations will be added to the software soon.
Certifications are then automatically sent on to the next receiver in the food supply chain, whether that be saleyard, transporter, processor or feedlot, or they can be printed if needed.
Aglive managing director Paul Ryan said the technology was designed to support product integrity and traceability for the red meat industry while also simplifying the process.
‘‘Producers can now manage industry declarations, see livestock lifecycle treatments, manage paddock movements and more — all wrapped up in one powerful platform, in the field, on a mobile device and via the cloud,’’ Mr Ryan said.
The Aglive IntegriPro App is available to download through the iTunes App Store and Google Play and users can then sign up to the program via the website.
